Recommended Prerequisite(s): MTH 63  

Course Description: Introduces mechanical blueprints using multi-view projection, sectional views, auxiliary views, title blocks, and drawing formats which are the basis for all graphical communication in the manufacturing industry today. Knowledge of the techniques used on blueprints is necessary in the industry whenever descriptions of size, shape, and arrangement are used to produce, service, or sell a product. This course also introduces students to blueprint and drawing techniques which will be built upon with additional modules in the program. Dual numbered as MET 105 .

Course Level: Career/Tech Preparatory

Course Learning Outcomes:
  • CLO#1: Demonstrate a working knowledge of words commonly used in drawings and identify their definitions as well as their abbreviations on standard industry blueprints.
  • CLO#2: Demonstrate ability to derive missing linear and/or angular dimensional values on an industry standard blueprint.
  • CLO#3: Demonstrate competency of multi-view drawing techniques used on blueprints in industry where descriptions of size, shape, and arrangement are used to produce, service, or sell a product. (ILO: Critical Thinking)
  • CLO#4: Demonstrate a working knowledge of sectional and auxiliary views, which are the two common methods used to show hidden features, and/or surfaces that are at angles other than 90 degrees.
  • CLO#5: Demonstrate a working knowledge of various standard-drawing title block notes and drawing formats used in industry.
